Hello, all. It’s Day Seven of NaPoWriMo — one week in, three-and-change to go. I hope you’ve had fun during our first week.

Our featured journal for Day 7 is The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature, which has published NaPoWriMo-er Patricia Johnson, and recently ran an online chapbook of poetry by Shann Palmer, a longtime NaPoWriMo-er who passed away late last year.

Our featured participant for the day is if we sink, where the poems veer blend a breathless Beat-poetry style with effective use of repetition and memory.

Today’s prompt is to write a love poem . . . but the object of the poem should be inanimate. You can write a love poem to your favorite pen, the teddy bear you had as a child (and maybe still have), or anything else, so long as it’s not alive! Happy writing.
